‘Physical technical basics of diagnostic ultrasound imaging in medicine’ on the basis of successful cooperation at the first seminar on the basics of ultrasound in medicine last November, invite the Forum MedTech Pharma and the Haus der Technik once again to a continuing education event on this topic. This seminar addresses primarily engineers, computer scientists, technicians and technically interested doctors from medical technology and health care. Latest developments make it possible to use the laws of Physics in ever greater extent, more innovative methods are developed. A comprehensive understanding of the technical background is a prerequisite that the users can fully exploit advantages and benefits of the new diagnostic possibilities. Therefore, this seminar will inform the participants about the physics of ultrasound and the technical functioning of the devices. Also enters the seminary on the emergence of the image and the biological effects of and is defined via potential risks and standards to protect against negative effects on.
